On the night of Joe’s 16th birthday, a split-second decision forces him to
choose between himself and his heart. As two very different paths unfold
before him, the consequences of that choice will change his life forever.

Tim Firth’s hilarious, high energy musical is set to a score of MADNESS hits
including “It Must Be Love”, “House of Fun”, “Baggy Trousers”, and “Our
House” to name a few.

We positively encourage applications from performers of all heritages and
ethnicities to apply for all roles.

Seeking:

DAD – A man of spirit who married the love of his life, had a son he loved
dearly, but took the wrong path and died as a result. He is desperate for
Joe not to make the mistakes he made. The narrator of the story, he is
charming, funny, and caring, albeit a little rough around the edges. We need
to have no doubt that this is a father who loves his family more than words
can express. His relationship with Joe, although the two rarely interact, is
emotional, real, and extremely important to the narrative so we absolutely
need to feel his desperation at Joe’s mistakes as he begins to take the
wrong path in life.
